I have hundreds of LPs from the 1970s-1980s that I would like to sell. Is there a price guide? Any tips you want to share?

I am sure that you already know which ones are really worth something. On average most records are worth about 2 to 6 bucks. This will be a lot of research on your part. I suggest that you start looking at the used record stores for a start then start looking at the web pages that are selling records and CD like, and You will need to decide the condition of each record to grade them and set a price.

Or you could forget all of this and just have a record shop pay you some money for the records.

Just go to eBay and see the completed listings to see how much they actually sold for.
Popsike will show you values for your higher dollar items.

If you have ANYTHING by The Beatles, I would be more than interested in potentially buying them from you. Please respond?

I am pretty sure that I do not have any Beatles albums. However, all my records are in storage. I will check and if I have any will let you know.

Thanks! I may also be interested in anything by Bob Dylan, The Who, The Doors, or Jimi Hendrix...

N. Gibson, what I stated in the second post stands for anyone willing to sell records on their own.

I have a collection of Broadway records from the40's to the 80's, some 400 or so that I would like to sell as a collection. Anyone know how to deal with that? I know that some are quite rare.

Rarity does not always equal value. If there is no demand there is no value is how it usually works. This is not always the case though. if you want to do the networking to find a buyer go right ahead. Other wise find a used record store and get what you can.

I am always interested in purchasing full collections as well. Tend to lean more towards Classic Rock, Funk, Soul, Jazz. Feel free to contact me at if you want to discuss further.
